Previously I may have intimated that my boy has dandy tendencies.
I mean just check out the boy in his fake wayfarers (free from McDonalds 18 years previously)
Okay, so back in the day with limited means he was dressed by his mother but now he certainly has some sartorial style. Indeed he has been a wandering throughout London and beyond to find his wedding attire.
Obviously I want him to look uber hot. I mean I know he will look hot but I cannot wait to see him put that little bit more effort in. He does look good in a sharp suit. The boy knows how to accessorise. However do I just leave him to his own devices?
I shan't be showing him my dress not out of some archaic thought that the devil will get me but well, actually I am not sure apart from the fact I think it will be a (hopefully) nice shock for him to see me in all my splendour without a sneak preview? So why should he be any different?
He has shown me multiple fabric swatches of POW checks and tweeds and I may have vetoed a couple but none that he would not have vetoed himself. He knows I want him to have a suit he loves and will wear again and again. Furthermore, he knows what type of suit suits him and which colours are "good."
So perhaps I am crazy or perhaps I just don't want the extra hassle of worrying about his suit styling. I am going to let Bean keep his outfit a secret. I want to be astonished by his fabulousness on the day.* Are you ladies involved with your man's attire or are you letting run free with his desires?
Fear not, I am still nagging him about nailing down the specifics and actually getting it made. Luckily (or maybe not) he works rather close to Saville Row where some not so expensive tailors occasionally frequent. In fact I am thinking this would be a good section for the Bean to comment upon or even about which to write. So are there any sartorially challenged grooms out there wanting any advice from my rather dapper boy?
*Although there is a certain caveat my dear. You may only turn up in a sensible outfit. I am not going to list the options which are not acceptable because I know you will use this as a loophole. Be sure that there will be no happy bride or wedding if you try to be "funny."
